If you can make changes to cleaner items, I consider that to be a huge victory. Clean, Cruelty Free or maybe even a few vegan beauty product options.
My job will be getting you the products in each category an (honest)option even if your on a budget or can be EXTRA AF. I will test most or all on myself to make sure you don't waste $$ or time.
Don't waste a product if its half full but think about making the switch.

*AS OF JANUARY 1ST 2020 NEW LEGISLATION IS SUPPOSED TO GO INTO EFFECT THAT 2 METHODS OF NON ANIMAL BASED TESTING IS APPROVED. "This means the alternative test methods are the preferred option for cosmetic ingredients, but not for final formulations and therefore China still requires foreign cosmetic companies to consent to have their products tested on animals before they can be sold in stores in China"-EWG.com. Unless, for instance a European Company has their product shipped directly over seas, in which case that product it not tested on animals.
